Town & Parish Election

The District of East Lindsey is divided into 203 Parishes of which 137 Parishes are large enough to have their own Parish Councillors. The remaining Parishes hold regular Parish Meetings.

Each Town or Parish Council elects a number of Councillors to represent their local community.

The Returning Officer for East Lindsey District Council is responsible for the organisation and administration of the election for those seats on behalf of the Parish Councils.
